Ok, I've found out some more information on my branch of the Darnbrough family...please get back to me if you think you may have a connection:

Joseph Darnbrough (b. ? probably in Leeds, Yorkshire, d. bef 1881, probably in Leeds, Yorkshire) was married in June of 1854, at St. Peter's, Leeds, Yorkshire, to Maria Bowman (b. abt. 1834, Leeds, Yorkshire, d. aft. 1881). They had the following children that I know of:

-Hannah M. Darnbrough (b. June 1862, Wakefield, Yorkshire... married at St. Michael, Buslingthorpe, Leeds, Yorkshire, to John D. Robb...)

-Joseph Henry Darnbrough (b. 1860, Leeds, Yorkshire), was married in September, 1880, at St. Michael, Buslingthorpe, Leeds, Yorkshire, to Mary A. Osborne (b. abt. 1860, Leeds, Yorkshire). They had the following children that I know of:

*Joseph Darnbrough (b. abt. 1879, Leeds, Yorkshire)
*William Darnbrough (b. abt. 1893, Leeds, Yorkshire)
*Walter Darnbrough (b. June 8, 1894, Leeds, Yorkshire)
*Harry Darnbrough (b. Sept 18, 1896, Leeds, Yorkshire)

William and Harry Darnbrough were 'Home Children', sent to Canada with Dr. Barnardo's group...They immigrated together on a ship called 'Corsican', departing Liverpoole on May 20, 1909, arriving Quebec, May 28, 1909, final destination listed as Toronto.

Walter Darnbrough was also a 'Home Child', sent to Canada with Dr. Barnardo's group...He immigrated on a ship called 'SS Dominion', departing Liverpoole on March 12, 1908, arriving Halifax NS, March 21, 1908, final destination listed as Toronto. Walter became a WWI veteran, and died abt 1978 in Toronto. He is buried in Pine Hills Cemetery, Scarborough, Ontario. Walter had married a lady named Florence, of whom I know absolutely nothing so far, and they had the following children that I know of:
-Harry Darnbrough (b. 1919)
-Albert Edward Darnbrough (b. Dec. 11, 1924)
-Irene Darnbrough
-Joe Darnbrough
-Mary Darnbrough
-Violet Darnbrough
-Alice Darnbrough

I do have a LITTLE more info on some of these people if anyone is interested.
